Telecommunications Act: Broadband monitoring

The Commerce Commission has completed the fourth quarter of its monitoring of uptake of residential broadband services provided or supported by Telecom New Zealand Limited.

The Commission commenced its broadband monitoring following Telecom’s announcement last year that it will have no fewer than 250,000 residential broadband connections (minimum 256 kbps downstream and 128 kbps upstream) by the end of 2005, of which more than a third (approximately 83,000) will be wholesale Jetstream or bitstream products.

As at the end of June 2005, Telecom had achieved 82.4 percent of the connection target with a total of 205,927 residential broadband connections. Of this number, 30,283 were wholesale connections, representing 36.5 percent of the wholesale target.
